KARACHI: The Majlis-i-Wahdatul Muslimeen (MWM) central secretary general, Allama Raja Nasir Abbas Jaffery, on Sunday condemned the government’s move to release Taliban leaders and reiterated that negotiations with killers of ‘55,000 Pakistanis’ were against the Sharia and the constitution.
Allama Jaffery said at a press conference at the party office here on Sunday that the government had suffered a blow to self dignity by accepting US $1.5 billion for ‘getting embroiled in Middle East affairs’.
“Pakistan’s foreign policy is getting adversely affected by extremists of a particular mindset,” he said. “All our neighbours, including Afghanistan, Iran, India and China have expressed concerns on Pakistan’s conduct. The neighbours’ dissatisfaction is a result of actions financed by foreign funding,” he alleged.
He said that Sharif brothers had already surrendered to Taliban who were busy destablising the country. Pakistan had become unsafe due to its flawed foreign policy, he said.
The Allama advised the government to learn a lesson from Afghanistan, which did not get lured by any aid nor got afraid of any Taliban attack and took part in elections, inflicting a defeat on ‘Saudi and Taliban agenda’.
